AAQI Quilts for Sale

While writing Sunday night's blog, I wanted to include photos of small art quilts as examples.  I made and donated several quilts to AAQI and decided to check on their progress.  I discovered that they are posted on the AAQI website.

I thought some of my readers might be interested in knowing which quilts of those I have donated are currently up for sale.  The basic information is mostly the same for each quilt, so it appears at the end of a segment.

Width: 12" Length: 9"

Materials/Techniques: Quilters cotton, batting, embellishments.

Artist Statement: All of the Alzheimer's Art Quilts that I make are meant to honor my late parents, Ellen and Riley Bourque. Mom was an Alzheimer's patient, and while my sisters and I helped, dad was her caregiver. Their 53 wonderful years gave them eight daughters and memories that she could not hold onto.

Dedication: In memory of Ellen and Riley Bourque.
This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

If you're interested in purchasing any of these quilts, or any AAQI quilt for that matter, simply go to http://www.alzquilts.org/ to make your purchase.  Type Mary Marcotte in the search box and all seven of these quilts will appear.  They are priced at $35-50 each, which means that together we will raise over 300 dollars for Alzheimer's research.  My personal goal is to make and donate enough to raise $1000, so this is only the beginning.
Happy Quilt Shopping,
Mary
